I mean no offense to anyone, and one can obviously post anything they want. I was intending this to be a thread simply acknowledging the day, and what it means.
I have a personal request. We have 355+ days when we can discuss the politics of war. Maybe today we can think of the individual soldier manning a checkpoint in Afghanistan or the medic going into a hot LZ to save lives or the solider guarding a building project in Iraq or the family that has lost their father, mother, son or daughter who will never be coming home.

micah, I have to agree with "splue".


And though there has been offense taken at some of the replies, I don't feel the real spirit of your initial post has been forgotten. I think it is possible to protest a war and still honor our brothers and sisters who are the warriors. If not for those brave souls, we would not be able to voice dissent without suffering dire consequences. Regardless of one's views of war, if you dishonor the warriors, you dishonor yourself.

Thank you.

Can we just put all the judgemental bullshit on the shelf for one fucking day?

On behalf of my son, lets just focus on the individuals for just one day, please. We can certainly resume the debate on the issue another day.

SDH, as I have said before, "Thanks go out to your son, for his service; and to his family as well, for the obvious hardship endured by all the relatives of one deployed to a war zone. Positive thoughts, peaceful vibes and prayers the he, and all his comrades in arms, will soon come home safely.
